its been thoroughly discussed on the list, buzz. check the archives.

BWAHAHAHA! just kidding. the story is "the short and happy life of francis macomber." its by the god of american literature, ernest hemingway. its about a guy and his wife and their hired guide, hunting big game on an african safari. the guy is bullied by his mean wife and acts cowardly during a hunting incident. the big game hunter gets in his ear and next time out he pulls out of it and shows some cajones. anything more and i'd need the spoiler tag, although i guess i done gave that up in an earlier post anyway.

its one of hemingway's best stories. READ IT!
